Summary
HISTORICAL FICTION. THE NEW NOVEL FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF WATER FOR ELEPHANTS. A gripping and poignant love story set in a remote village in the Scottish Highlands at the end of the Second World War - perfect for all the fans of Water For Elephants. After embarrassing themselves at the social event of the year in high society Philadelphia on New Year's Eve of 1944, Maddie and Ellis Hyde are cut off financially by Ellis's father, a former army Colonel who is already ashamed of his colour-blind son's inability to serve in WWII. To Maddie's horror, Ellis decides that the only way to regain his father's favour (and generosity) is to succeed in a venture his father attempted and very publicly failed at: he will hunt the famous Loch Ness monster and when he finds it he will restore his father's name and return to his father's good graces. In January 1945 they hitch a ride on a ship across the Atlantic while the war is still raging all around them
